For Mum

Good Evening
My Crafty Friends, Followers  and  Visitors

Boy the weekend has flown by and had some catching up to do, hence why
I am late with my blog.

I would like to welcome Jackie who is my latest follower, I hope you enjoy
your visits Jackie and please let me know your blog address so that I can
pop over to you and follow.

Well had a lovely time yesterday at Leigh and I did behave myself and not
spent too much but the things I bought I am very pleased with.

Mostly I was stocking up on goodies to start doing Altered Art projects. Don't
have much of an idea yet as to what goes with what but I will have.

I could not resist buying this MDF heart and I have been doing it for some
time today (longer than anticipated but spent at least 1/2 hour looking at it)

Anyway once I started I was on a roll and I think seeing as this is only
my third attempt at this craft I am very please with the result and I 
hope mum will like it as I will be giving her this on Mothers Day as part
of her present.


1. Started by covering the heart with white Gesso and once
dried I covered it with Imagination Crafts Lavender Lace

2.The flower at the bottom is made from ribbon I bought 
at the show and you draw the cord at the  ends and it
make this gorgeous flower and I put a brad through
the middle.

3. All the rest of the flowers and pearls are from my
stash and they have all been adhered using my heat

I used a piece of Lilac satin ribbon to create the hanger.

The reason I have used mainly Lilac is that it my
mums favourite colour.

There it it! my creation and I am so proud of it
and I have also created today another little project
but I will share that with you sometime this week
as its another little present for my Mum who
will be 87 on Saturday.

Hope you can join me again tomorrow

Until Next Time

As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
